Did you know that a steppe eagle can travel up to 2,200 miles in a single day? So we wonder how far and where they would go if we could track them for an entire year? Well, thanks to a young man called Fahd Qash, we can now see where steppe eagles went for an entire year of their lives.
Fahd Qash from Jizan, Saudi Arabia was minding his own business and enjoying a quiet stroll when he came across something out of the ordinary. What he found was a dead eagle with a tracking device. Upon closer inspection, the man saw that the device had the owner’s email on it.
As it later turned out, the GPS has been fitted in Russia, some 20 years ago! A group of scientists had even decided to run an experiment where they tracked the movements of 20 eagles for a whole year. It turns out that this group of scientists was tracking these eagles and now we can see exactly where they went!

We are living in a world that nothing is guaranteed forever. due to extreme pollution and global warming and harmful thing happening the earth is becoming a big mess. Not only for humans but also for animals. They have been massively going on extinct and unprotected by human harm and evilness.
Nonetheless, the rates of extinction that are currently taking place are actually comparable to the rates that took place when dinosaurs were wiped off of the face of the planet.
However, there is still a ray of hope when it comes to people who actually care about other beings except themselves.
I bet Everyone knows the late, great Steve Irwin. He left behind an incredible legacy. He was a crocodile hunter with a heart of gold. Now, his loved ones are doing their best to carry on the tradition. His children Robert and Bindi have continued their conservation efforts. Irwin’s wife Terri is also heavily involved.
1. Steve Irwin was a crocodile hunter and an activist for wild animal rights.
When we remember steve we see that all he ever wanted was that all the animals in the Australian Zoo where he used to work to be treated with the utmost respect. If these animals are not given the chance to hunt down moving prey, they are more likely to become extinct. That’s why the efforts of trained handlers are important. Without their assistance, the crocodiles are unable to feed in the proper manner.
His son Murray made a recreation photo like his father did but 15 years after a very iconic photo of his father feeding the same crocodile. Now, Robert is the one who is responsible for his welfare. The Instagram post went viral and was liked by every animal lover out there. And Robert hopes he can shed light to everyone about animal rights welfare.
